Mary, Mary

not always contrary,

Just why did this garden grow?

Did you plant enough seeds

To crowd out the weeds?

The question is…

How can any of us really know?

If you check and look closely

Row upon row

Perfect spacing and timing

Takes just the right knack.

And when it all over, 

when it’s all said and done

will you tell me then,

Just who had your back?

garden, with Grandma and Nancy

Blue Springs, MO

circa 1961
